Many enterprises and local KAUs within the industry division Information and communication (J) operate within different industries. The unit is placed in the division in which it has its main activity. If a unit changes its activity it may also have to move to a different industry. This is more common within industry division J than in most other industries. The result is that figures in one year may not necessarily be directly comparable to subsequent years.
Joint tables including all industry sections, divisions and groups will be published in Statbank on Friday 28 June at 10:00 am.
